I told my students about it yesterday.  I told them all to phone their mothers even though it isn't celebrated (yet) in China.

I received a Mother's Day wish from one of my students saying that even though my children aren't here - they (the students) are all my children so I should be happy.

DS, it is really sweet of your student. Always pleasant when someone cares!

As for Mother's Day in China. They have some mother's day (and it isnt the 8th of march - dont confuse). May be even today for some is already tradition. Throughout 5 years in China I'd see students and men/women with flowers. I forgot the date, but each time I asked I would get an asnwer "It's Mother's day! Did you call your mother?"

Yes, it's Mother's Day in China today. Babe phoned her Mum, but she wasn't home. Haven't tracked her down yet. My Mum wasn't home either, but she is traceable. She was happy to hear from me.

Yes... happy mothers day to all the mums. Hope it was a great day for you.

And yes, I did remember to call my Mummy.

I had a very funny story told me on Saturday.  One of my students told me he had phoned his mother on Mother's Day as I told him (and the class) to do.  His mother was very confused.  She asked him if he wanted more money.  She asked if he was sick.  She didn't understand that he just phoned to say he loved her. He was a little confused by her response too.  I told him to phone her more often and just talk and tell her her loved her. bfbfbfbfbf ahahahahah
